It’s all part of a new law that requires newly purchased school buses to have seatbelts.

The new law will not apply to school buses bought before 2017 or school districts who chose to opt out of the law due to budget constraints.

Coming up tonight on KGNS News Evening Edition, we will tell you how UISD is planning on implementing the new law.
